Darrelle Revis missed Jets practice amidst groin injury concern

Published Add your comment

The New York Jets have enjoyed a successful start to the 2015 season, going 2-0 with impressive wins over the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts.

A big factor behind the early success for the Gang Green has been the role of the team's defense, with Todd Bowles' team leading the NFL in turnovers at this stage of the campaign.


So news that Darrelle Revis, one of their key defensive stars and a man responsible for four of the team's 10 total turnovers, didn't practice on Wednesday will be a cause of some concern for the franchise.

As reported by NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, the 30-year-old cornerback missed the session due to a groin issue that flared up during the Jets' Monday night win over the Colts.

Although the reigning AFC Defensive Player of the Week was listed on the team's injury report, head coach Todd Bowles didn't offer any details on the severity of the injury when speaking to the media.

Fine form

Revis has been in ominous form since returning to the Jets this season, and fans of the franchise will be crossing their fingers that the groin injury won't keep him off the field moving forward.

Responsible for four tackles, one interception and two fumble recoveries as the New Jersey franchise held Andrew Luck and the Colts to just seven points in week two, Revis would be a huge loss as the team prepare to take on the Philadelphia Eagles.

It is thought the six-time Pro Bowler's status will become clearer later today when Bowles speaks to the media once again.
